"United for inclusive education: Moving beyond traditional learning” ELLA–Inclusion Congress

On the 13th October 2015, the AVA jour fixe took place in Vienna, Austria.This policy event on validation of non-formal and informal learning was organised by theEuropean Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) and the Association of Austrian Adult Education Centres (VÖV) and gathered Austrian and international participants from more than ten countries. Four experts from the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania and Denmark were invited to share their national experiences on validation. Participants asked the experts to list the strong and weak points of each system and engaged in a discussion around their sustainability and inclusivity. Main challenges at this stage are the lack of permeability (between labour-market and education or within sectors of the latter) and fragmentation (between policy and its implementation, or among practices).

One of the expert was Dora Redruello from the Cerebral Palsy Association of Coimbra (APCC), a young professional from Portugal who explained her association initiatives to make the validation process inclusive for people with disabilities. You can find her presentation (PPT and audio) on the page of the event.
